The share for sale is
a Carefree Cruising 4 week "Yellow" share. This gives 3 weeks during
the less busy March-May and September-October periods as well as a
"Blue" week in the winter.
Other shares in this boat are either "Red" (peak) or "School Holiday"
The "Red" and "Yellow" weeks are allocated first.
For each colour, the owners pick according to a rotating preference list. Owner 1 picks first, Owner 2 second and so on.
For the following year, the owner that picked first for each of the lists goes to the bottom of the list and everyone else moves up one.
For the remaining weeks entitlement, all the owners both Red and Yellow are on the same list. The picking order of the owners is reversed, so that those that picked last first time round, pick first for the remaining weeks.
The first owner in the "Red" list picks first, followed by the first owner in the "Yellow" list, second owner in the "Red" list, second owner in the "Yellow" list, third owner in the "Red" list, etc.
A 1/12th share owner picks one week from the remaining "Red" and "Yellow" weeks and one week from the "Blue" weeks.
That all sounds quite complicated when written down but in practice it does work really well.
|Priority for school holidays||There is a School Holiday system that affects "School Holiday" shares|

General Comments by vendor
WD is a really well equipped boat: dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and well equipped galley. WD is also equipped with a comfortable 4'6" fixed double bed. A real home from home.
There is a friendly bunch of co-owners, most of whom we meet at the yearly AGM. They all look after WD well and the boat is always spotlessly clean and tidy when we pick it up.
